Date: 22nd April 2021
Time: 17:00 - 18:30
We're hosting this event to hear from law students, as an open forum to understand how your experiences during study have impacted your wellbeing. Perhaps more than ever during the coronavirus pandemic, mental health and wellbeing have been discussed widely and we want to take this opportunity to hear from the future of our profession.
There is no set agenda for the meeting, as we hope you will bring different views and we know everyone has a different story. The types of things we anticipate we might cover during the session are:
- How has your university life been impacted by the coronavirus pandemic, and has this impacted your wellbeing?
- What support has been available to you?
- Will mental health and wellbeing challenges remain for students after the pandemic? Are there any common causes/issues among students that might lead to wellbeing challenges?
- What are your thoughts about mental health and wellbeing in the legal profession generally?
- Any comments about how career planning and the life of a law student can impact wellbeing.
Any discussions from the session will be kept completely anonymous.
The session will be hosted by Charlotte Edgar, our Law Society of Scotland Council representative for new lawyers.
This session is open to any student who is currently undertaking an LLB in Scots Law, or the Diploma in Professional Legal Practice. You may also be a recent graduate from either of these programmes, but not yet started a traineeship.
To attend, email Lyndsey Thomson, Careers & Outreach Co-ordinator at the Law Society: email@example.com. Your place will be confirmed and you will be sent the joining instructions ahead of the session.
You can also feel free to get in touch to ask a question about attending the session.
Please note that spaces on the roundtable will be capped and will be allocated on a first come, first served basis.
